Slaughter of bovine animals 12. (1) It is an offence for the occupier to use a slaughterhouse to slaughter for human consumption a bovine animal that, in accordance with point 2 of Part I of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulation, requires BSE testing at slaughter, unless the Secretary of State has approved the Required Method of Operation ( RMOP ) for that slaughterhouse and that occupier. (2) The RMOP must, as a minimum, describe (a) the procedures that will be followed to comply with Part 1 of this Schedule; and (b) all the systems and procedures specified in Part 2 of this Schedule. (3) The Secretary of State must approve the RMOP if satisfied that all the requirements of the EU TSE Regulation and these Regulations will be complied with, and the occupier must demonstrate this by means of an assessment of two days duration during which animals are slaughtered (using bovine animals that are not required, under point 2 of Part 1 of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulation, to be tested for BSE). (4) If a bovine animal referred to in paragraph (1) is slaughtered for human consumption other than in accordance with the RMOP, the occupier of the slaughterhouse is guilty of an offence.

(3) If no sample has been sent to, or no sample has been received by, an approved testing laboratory for testing in accordance with paragraph 8 and 9 of this Schedule, or if an insufficient test result is received, in respect of an animal required to be tested under this Schedule, the occupier must immediately dispose of (a) the carcase and all parts of the body (including the blood and the hide) of that animal; and (b) unless a derogation has been granted under sub-paragraph (5), the carcase and all parts of the body (including the blood but not the hide) of the animal immediately preceding that animal on the slaughter line and the two animals immediately following it, in accordance with point 6(4) of that Part; and for the purposes of this sub-paragraph an insufficient test result means a certification by an approved testing laboratory that the sample 17

18 sent to the laboratory was not of an adequate quality or was not of a sufficient quantity to obtain a test result. (4) If a no-test result is received, in respect of an animal required to be tested under this Schedule, the occupier must immediately dispose of the carcase and all parts of the body (including the blood and the hide) of that animal in accordance with point 6(4) of that Part; and for the purposes of this sub-paragraph a no-test result means a negative result from a sample following multiple rapid testing where such testing was certified as necessary by an approved testing laboratory. (5) The Secretary of State may grant in writing a derogation under point 6(6) of Part I of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulation if satisfied that the slaughterhouse operates a system that prevents contamination between carcases.

(1) In relation to any sheep or goat selected for sampling, the occupier of a slaughterhouse, hide market or tannery must (a) for the purposes of point 7(3) of Part II of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulation, retain the carcase and all parts of the body (including the blood and the hide) pending receipt of the test result (except to the extent that point 7(3) permits direct disposal of animal by-products pending receipt of a negative rapid test result); and (b) in the event of a positive result, immediately dispose of the carcase and all parts of the body (including the blood and the hide) in accordance with point 7(4) of that Part. (2) Where (a) a sheep, goat or deer has died, or has been killed, other than for human consumption; and (b) either (i) the death or killing occurred at premises approved, or required to be approved, under the Animal By-Products Regulations 2005; or (ii) the carcase of the sheep, goat or deer has been taken to those premises, the occupier of the premises must comply with any direction given by the Secretary of State requiring the carcase to be sampled at the premises. (3) In relation to any deer selected for monitoring for TSE in accordance with Part III of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulations, the occupier of a slaughterhouse, hide market or tannery must (a) retain the carcase and all parts of the body (including the blood and the hide) pending receipt of the test result; and (b) in the event of a positive result, immediately dispose of the carcase and all parts of the body (including the blood and the hide) in accordance with point 7(4) of Part II of Chapter A of Annex III to the EU TSE Regulation.

19 the word occupier wherever owner is mentioned in those paragraphs), with the occupier paying any valuation fee arising. (3) For the purposes of sub-paragraph (2), the market value is the price that would reasonably be expected to have been obtained for the animal from a buyer in the open market at the time of the valuation, and on the assumption that the animal was not affected by a TSE.
